What are a few of your favorite things? Going to soccer games with Team Awesome (my FYI), watching baseball, running, reading, PBS Masterpiece, NPR, movies from the '40s.
What’s on your desert island jukebox? Mahler’s Second Symphony, Bach’s double violin concerto, everything by Mozart, and Ella Fitzgerald - the songbook recordings.
What can’t you live without? Family, faith, music.
What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? The Beloit Historical Society - they have a room full of artifacts that reminded me of the last scene in Citizen Kane - just stacks of history waiting to be discovered.
What do you most look forward to? Defending my dissertation and (finally) earning my doctorate. And Harry Potter 7 (Parts 1 and 2).
